Maray Albert Dock, Liverpool

Maray Albert Dock, Liverpool - Female Original

Having previously visited both the Bold Street Maray and my local Allerton Road venue, I was thrilled to get a chance to check out their latest one on The Albert Dock. Despite being a Liverpool local, I haven’t visited The Albert Dock anywhere near as often as I probably should have. But, after my trip to the Albert Dock Maray venue, has that all changed? (spoiler alert…yes!).

I was very kindly invited to Maray as part of the press launch for their Albert Dock venue. All opinion are of course my own.

The Albert Dock Venue

So, what can you expect from the venue? Well decor-wise, exposed pipes and mix-and-match lighting were some of the stand-out features. Mosaic tiles featured around the kitchen area, and bare brick walls and double height ceilings contrasted with them to create an overall industrial feel.

With huge floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of the building, letting in so much lovely natural light, it’s the perfect spot for afternoon eating. But imagine how dreamy it’ll look in the evening with The Albert Dock all lit up…the view would be incredible!

The venue itself is split over two levels with more of a sit down dinner vibe going on upstairs in their ‘private function’ area. Personally I’m more of a casual dining fan (which is why I’ve always been such a fan of Spanish dining culture) so downstairs is a bit more my vibe. However, looking at that stunning view over the docks could just about convert me to loving a proper sit down meal. Just look at it!

The Albert Dock Menu

Now what you’ve really come here for…the food. Given that I’d visited their other venues before, I was particularly excited to see what The Albert Dock restaurant had to offer.

Nocellara Olives

We started with a few nocellara olives, something that I think can often divide opinion. For me, olives are an amazing addition to any dining experience. I’ve always loved how when you’re in Spain you’ll get a little dish of them with almost any drink you have. It’s the ultimate bar snack! So I was more than happy to indulge in them.

Cured Salmon

Served with labneh (soft, creamy cheese), blackberry and lemon gel, this cured salmon skewer was a mind-blower for me. I have to admit that I wouldn’t typically order a cold dish if I was at a restaurant. But this little canapé change my mind completely.

I would never have thought that salmon would work so well with blackberries. But my god was it beautiful!

Their Famous Roasted Cauliflower

Arguably their most famous dish, Maray’s roasted cauliflower is an absolute must-try. I ended up trying both the vegan and non-vegan versions of it on the night. The vegan version was actually my favourite! Served with tahini, yoghurt and harissa, it makes quite the statement when it’s served whole. Definitely one to check out when you visit.

Whip Royale Cocktail

Mixing together cucumber infused gin, lavender and prosecco, this cocktail was absolutely stunning. Super refreshing and light, making it perfect for Summer sipping. It definitely rivalled my favourite St Germain Spritz cocktail.

Raspberry Iced Tea

Perfect for the designated driver, or if you simply don’t fancy an alcoholic beverage, their Raspberry Iced Tea was an evening favourite. Mixing together raspberry, sumac (a tangy, lemony spice) and cold-brewed black tea, it was the ideal blend of sweet and bitter.

    Being welcomed by a glass of Prosecco makes it the perfect start to an event! The cauliflower dish sounds real too nice. I love cauliflower, so anything cauliflower makes me happy! I think I’ll have to go here when I finally get to Liverpool!

    I’m from the states so I always get excited to read posts about trendy places in European cities! The cured salmon with blackberries sounds so unique, I’m curious to try it one day! This event was started off right when they greeted you with a glass of Prosecco! Cheers! The drink choices served seem to be on point too 🙂 I’m glad you had a lovely experience at the venue!

    This spot looks lovely! That raspberry tea sounds so delish, and that cocktail as well. Salmon anything is my kind of dish, so I’d love that!
